Guava Milkshake - Batido de Guayaba

Today was such a beautiful hot and sunny day. We went to a local farm to pick up some more plants for our kitchen garden and backyard. After organizing all of our plants into the car, we got home and decided we needed a large refreshing drink after moving them to their spots in the garden. I had picked up two perfectly ripe guavas the day before so guava milkshakes it was! This is one of my favorite milkshakes (batidos) to get in Costa Rica; it's cool, rich, and filling without being cloyingly sweet. 
Here's my recipe:
